Urban Informatics Minor
With urban spaces becoming data-rich environments, the goal of this minor is to provide students with the ability to use large-scale data from a variety of sources to understand and address real-world challenges in the urban context.
In combining courses that address spatial analysis and mapping, data science, and social sciences, this minor provides the background necessary to investigate data-driven problems in relation to urban scenarios. A capstone project will provide students with the opportunity to address a real-world issue through focused study and applied research under the direction of a faculty member and in collaboration with stakeholders.
This minor would pair nicely with either our BS or BA in Geography, but is also open to any Mason undergraduate student.
Requires a total of 18 credits.
